Gluten Free Potato Buds: YUCK!!!!!!!!
Okay, first it was the Hickory Farms Beef Stick. Now, another rant from yours truly.
Around Thanksgiving, I picked up a box of Betty Crocker Potato Buds, not looking carefully at it. When I prepared and tasted it, I knew something was not right. Then I look at the package, and it says "Gluten Free". Well, I thought I had just picked up the wrong box. Tonight, at the store, all I see is the Gluten Free crap. Looked at their website, and it looks like they've switched all Potato Buds to Gluten Free!!!! : P
WHY don't these suits research with the people who actually purchase these things, before they ruin their products? Or, at least, make one new version AND the originals???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let me add a P.S. to this.
I realize that some have health issues and have need of this product. I am glad that this is available for them. I am merely upset that some corporations seem not to consider all angles before they make a change to a long-established and loved product and delete it from the shelves.
i just did a quick search, and it looks like *no one* is happy with them. there are posts all over the web about how bad they are, and nothing but complaints in the comments section of the product page on the Betty Crocker site. my advice would be to try another brand like Hungry Jack or Idahoan.
hmm. What scares me is the fact that something called potato buds actually has gluten in it that needs to be taken out.
